Tyson Fury, David Price open to fight in 2018

Former rivals Tyson Fury and David Price take to social media to discuss a potential heavyweight clash in 2018.

Former rivals Tyson Fury and David Price have both claimed that they are open to a heavyweight clash in 2018.

At the start of their respective professional careers, it had appeared inevitable that the two Englishmen would clash in the paid ranks, with Price holding a win over Fury in the amateurs.

However, in April 2013 - two months after Price was knocked out by Tony Thompson - Fury made an impact on the world stage by stopping Steve Cunningham in New York and a showdown between the pair has never been considered realistic for over four years.

Fury went on to become world champion with a points win over unified title holder Wladimir Klitschko, but an ongoing saga with UKAD has contributed to the 29-year-old spending two years out of the ring ahead of a potential comeback in 2018.

Price has not fought since February when he was stopped by Christian Hammer, but the Liverpudlian has put himself forward as an opponent for Fury if a return goes as planned next year.

Fury has also been linked with a clash with American Shannon Briggs, with his main aim to face Anthony Joshua or Deontay Wilder at the end of 2018.
